Memory of Producer Disco D Brings in Funds for Michigan Teen Center

discod.jpgThe Neutral Zone teen center in Ann Arbor, MI, has raised nearly $7,000 in donations in the name of late producer David “Disco D” Shayman. According to the Ann Arbor News, events at clubs in New York and Washington D.C. brought in around $3,000, in addition to $3,900 that was contributed by private donors in Shayman’s memory. After consulting with the centers music program staff, local teens and Disco D’s friends and family, Neutral Zone has decided to use the money to subsidize classes in DJing. A portion of the funds will also be used to purchase studio equipment, repair a set of turntables and bring in guest DJ’s for youth workshops. Shayman, who grew up in Ann Arbor, committed suicide in January after a long bout with depression. He was known for producing the 50 Cent’s “Ski Mask Way,” and his work with AZ, Trick Daddy and Lil Scrappy. He was 27 at the time of his death.
